Authors and Sites

Nickyrockit

  • Recommended by: meme-asaurus
  • Synopsis: She mostly writes Mike/Julie. And by ‘mostly,’ I mean ‘always.’ Lots of character depth for Julie. Her plot-heavy fics are plot-heavy, her smut is smut, and there is no admixture between the two.

General Fics
Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

thursday's child has far to go (and they go so very, very quickly) by ThinkingCAPSLOCK

  • Recommended by: meme-asaurus
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: He's already lost one child.
  • Comments: Remember back in the finale where Kane screams ‘YOU WERE LIKE A SON TO ME!’? This fics takes a moment for you to think about that. Plus, it takes a small step further.

i'm not the same kid from your memory by Birchbow and roachpatrol

  • Recommended by: silound
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Chuck belongs in Deluxe. He has always belonged in Deluxe. He's never met the Burners before in his life. He's definitely not the infamous traitor Mike Chilton's dead boyfriend. And he's going to make it back home if it kills him.
  • Comments: Chuck-centric what if- if Kane wiped Chuck's memory and made him retain the same loyalty to Deluxe that he used to have for the Burners. Some misunderstandings ensue. VERY awesome.

The Simple Truth by stickynotelover

  • Recommended by lalalei2001
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The proverbial thorn wasn't the bad part. It was the open, freely bleeding wound when it gets pulled and when you begin questioning if the pain was worth it. Post series.

The Father by LanternKing

Shipping Fics

Motorcity Season 2 by tayrox

  • Recommended by: meme-asaurus
  • Pairing: Mike/Julie, Texas/Female OC
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A written version of what Season 2 should be like for Motorcity.
  • Comments: Be cautious about reading the first chapter, as it contains each synopsis for all 20 ‘episodes.’ If you want to go in completely blind, skip to chapter 2.

Five Times Someone Already Knew Julie’s Secret by Axelerate13

  • Recommended by: meme-asaurus
  • Pairing: Julie/Mike
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: ...and One Time Julie Knew Theirs.

What’s Her Name by PinnedInsect

  • Recommended by: meme-asaurus
  • Pairing: Texas/Julie
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Julie tries to help Texas remember the name of a girl.
  • Comments: Short and sweet. You will see the twist coming. You will not care.
  • Tags: WAFF

Alternate Universe
Stories that take place in a different history than the canon show. Maybe the world didn't end. Maybe Mike never split up with Kane. It all fits here.

Override 0 by SpoonerizeSwiftness

  • Recommended by: silound
  • Pairing: Mike/Chuck
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Behind him, Chuck goes perfectly still, frozen in mid-step, and then slowly eases back to a stand-still, waiting. “Acknowledged,” Chuck says, quiet and flat and empty. “Standing by.”
  • Comments: Chuck is a cyborg theory taken to logical conclusion.

Chilton 2.0 by BirchBow and LaughingStones

  • Recommended by: silound
  • Pairing: Mike/Chuck
  • Status: Dormant; last updated December 2017
  • Synopsis: Mike blinks once, startled, and then bursts out laughing. “Me?!” he says, and shakes his head as Chuck gives him a slightly hurt look. “Chuckles, come on. I’m a cadet, what am I gonna do in a lab?”
  • Comments: If Mike was forced to be loyal to Kane and Deluxe, tech implants and all. Mike-centric, overcoming trauma.

Crossover
Stories that cross over into other works.

Gained the World by mischif

  • Recommended by: meme-asaurus
  • Crosses over with: How to Train Your Dragon
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The day that Mike Chilton arrived in Motorcity was the absolutely worst godawful day of his entire life. And unconditionally the Best Day as well. Motorcity AU where the Cars are Dragons.
  • Comments: Gonna repeat that: AU where the cars are freaking dragons.
